Rogue Ohio Power Bar

Fully machined and assembled in Columbus, OH, the 29mm Rogue Ohio Power Bar features a 205,000 PSI steel shaft (200,000 PSI for Stainless), single powerlifting knurl marks, and center knurling. The bar’s knurl pattern is deep and coarse without being sharp or abrasive, and the 29mm shaft diameter and high tensile strength result in little to no flex or whip. This makes the Ohio Power Bar a perfectly honed workhorse for the bench, squat, and deadlift.

The 45 LB Ohio Power Bar includes bronze bushings, a snap ring design, and 16.25” of loadable sleeve length.

When ordering, you can select from three finish options:

  • Black Zinc shaft with Bright Zinc sleeves
  • Stainless Steel shaft with Chrome sleeves
  • Bare Steel

Rogue also manufactures a 20KG Ohio Power Bar, with friction-welded sleeves and 16-7/8" loadable sleeve space.

Specifications:

  • Made in Columbus, OH, USA
  • More aggressive knurling for powerlifting
  • Center knurl for added “stick” to the back during squats
  • 29mm Diameter and 205,000 PSI tensile strength (200,000 for Stainless) for greater rigidity and reduced whip
  • Bronze Bushings and Snap Ring Design for smooth spin
  • Weight: 45lb
  • Finish Options: Black Zinc Shaft / Bright Zinc Sleeves, Stainless Shaft / Chrome Sleeves, or Bare Steel
  • Lifetime Warranty against bending*
  • 1205,000 PSI Steel (200,000 PSI For Stainless)

    The Ohio Power Bar’s 29mm diameter steel shaft boasts a tensile strength of 205,000 PSI (200,000 PSI for Stainless), delivering superior rigidity and virtually zero whip/flex. Machined and assembled in Columbus, Ohio, the bar also features a snap-ring design and quality bronze bushings for a smooth, consistent feel.

  • 2Aggressive Knurl

    The bar includes single powerlifting marks and a center knurl, each featuring a deep, coarse pattern that produces a reliable grip / stick without being sharp or abrasive. Perfecting this knurl pattern is both a science and an art. Every bar shaft is machined in Columbus on new Haas machines (built in the USA) and fine-tuned and personally tested by the Rogue team.

  • 3Three Finish Options

    Depending on the look and feel you prefer, there is a version of the Ohio Power Bar right in your wheelhouse. The Zinc option (black shaft, bright sleeves) provides excellent corrosion resistance, the Bare Steel creates a classic look and natural feel, and the new Stainless Steel variation (with Chrome sleeves) strikes a balance between the two.

  • 4Use It With These Other Rogue Products

    Ohio Power Bar owners can use this barbell in conjunction with a broad range of other top caliber Rogue powerlifting products, from the Westside Bench and R-3 Power Rack to deadlift bar jacks, Wagon Wheel plates, and Calibrated Steel Plates.

  • 5Lifetime Warranty

    The Ohio Power Bar’s quality construction is backed by Rogue’s Lifetime Warranty against bending. This is a barbell equipped for high intensity, everyday use. Please Note: The warranty does not cover damage due to negligent or faulty use, alteration, maintenance, storage or handling by the user, i.e., dropping the bar on a box, bench, spotter arms or pins in a power rack, excessive dropping with insufficient or damaged bumpers, or excessive dropping with iron plates, and similar usage. Any specific issues regarding a Rogue product with which a customer is not satisfied will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis.

  • 6Fast Rogue Shipping

    Orders placed by 3PM ship the same day. The Rogue Shipping System allows you to track your order from the time you place it to the time it hits your door. Order today, track today.

Please Note: Like any fine piece of machined steel, a bare steel barbell will require some upkeep. Occasionally brushing the bar down with 3-in-1 oil or WD-40 will create a beautiful patina look. This is how bars were made for decades and it really does produce an unmatched feel.

Rogue Ohio Power Bar is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 179.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Thor Edition Power Bar 20kg - a total beast As an owner of the raw steel, zinc covered and stainless steel OHBs how could I not add ths one to my aresenal ? In many ways this is my favourite version of the bar. Why? The cerakote shaft makes it a breeze to maintain coupled with Chrome sleeves for longevity when loading and unloading steel plates. I hate to think what steel plates would do to cerakote coated sleeves. Otherwise - yes the stainless bar is awesome. It just a matter of taste - when I don't want to squat that final heavy set. The word "Thor" looks back at me and I think what would Thor do ? He would squat the dam bar...hahah

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great knurl = great feel Just received my black zinc Ohio Power Bar. I got the black zinc because my gym is in my garage in the humid south. I have had 400 lbs on it so far with zero flex and I love the aggressive knurl. 29mm is better for grip strength development and just feels better in my hands. Excellent fit and finish, fast shipping, great product over all. This bar will be here longer than I will!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bar I have been waiting since I started my basement gym to update my craigslist found Beater Bar and decided on the black zinc variant of this bar. I love the grippy knurling and only wish I could have gotten this with a carakote finish. The black zinc is kinda meh but it gets the job done.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from May be the best power bar for the price. The knurling is aggressive (which I really enjoy!). Love having more room on the collars too! Easily my absolute favorite bar.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top notch bar! Been using for a few months, great knurling, like the feeling of the bar specially for back squats. Typical rogue product with great quality for reasonable price. Thinking in getting a second to transition faster between sets but waiting for a cerakote version. Rogue any news on that?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 20kg Stainless Steel Ohio Power bar As a meet director, I bought this in the 20kg stainless steel version for meets I direct. I just used it at my most recent meet, and it performed very well. Knurling is good, sleeves rotate nicely, and it is definitely plenty stiff for squats and benches. Very reasonable price as well.
